My new route to work routinely passes Hamilton Park in Bryanston. Towards the end of last year I noticed that some construction was taking place within the park (fencing, some shelters, a wendy-house, etc) and was curious as to what was happening. I went for a walk there this past weekend and finally managed to assuage my curiosity!
The sectioned off area is a special Doggy Daycare area that has been organised by the team at Sandton Doggy Daycare.
This is such a fantastic idea especially considering our lifestyle where we work a full day and live in smaller spaces. For those dog-lovers that live in a first/second/third floor apartments, this is a great way to keep your doglets busy during the day with lots of fresh air and room to run and play.
I wanted to find out more about this initiative so I got in touch with Tamara at Sandton Doggy Daycare… This service allows you to drop off your dog where they will get one-on-one play time, walks on a lead, and socialisation with other dogs. The daycare also employs young adults with special needs through The Living Link allowing them to find gainful employment, empower themselves and contribute to society. With the backing of Johannesburg City Parks I definitely think this idea will go far…
You can either opt to book your doglet in for a full day (08h00-16h00) or half day (08h00-12h00/12h00-16h00). There are different pricing options available depending on the number of days per week you require the service.
For more information (rates, additional services, etc), please get in touch with Tamara (0721086701 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
